Today is Henry Miller's birthday

Just had to say that...it's also my grandmother's birthday. She was born in 1910, so that makes her 97.

She's my last surviving grandparent, and has been for several years. She lived through the Russian Revolution, and came to this country in 1937, left my mother with her grandmother, and returned to Poland with my grandfather for a few years until they had to come back here. They worked a farm in Connecticut in the Depression, and had five kids.
